    Electrical or Maximum Overdrive come to life????

    Ok so here the skinny, not me but the skinny on my situation.

    Been keeping my ski overnight on a plastic ski dock for a few nights while at Lake Cumberland.

    Put 20 hours on the ski since Thursday afternoon through today.

    Ran great all weekend.

    Started up today and waited in no wake zone at marina for buddies who were getting their boat out of their slip.

    It died, then it started to Crank on its own without me touching the Start/Stop button.

    I tried the trim and the gauge for just the trim would go blank until I took the DESS off and re-plugged it in, at which point the ski starts automatically on it's own.

    Then at about 3K RPM it dies on it's own......

    and if I leave the DESS on it tries to crank on its own.....

    I ran it across the lake at about 5-6K RPM and about 35 MPH and it seemed to run fine.......

    I did spray Fluid Film on most exposed metal in the engine compartment but that was over a week ago!!!!

    Any ideas or experience that can help are APPRECIATED!!!

    Thanks in advance
    Joe

    Real Funny!

    It was eerily similar to that!!!!! Kinda like "Bad Kitt", you know after he got all pissy with Michael because he moved on the Babewatch show and Kitt wanted to screw with his ability to datew women from the cast of the show. Hey wait aminute was Hasselhoff gay? Not that there is anything wrong with that or anything!!!

    Anywho. Thanks for the laugh Mike and thanks for the suggestion Boost. I left the seat off and the bin out with the hood up for a few hours this afternoon in the sun and then I put the key in before hauling it home and it acted normal....earlier I forgot to mention but with the DESS on the gauges werew going haywire intermittently. After the few hours in the sun the gauges were good and it started on the first press of the start button and stop with the second press as it should.....

    Thanks again,
    Joe
